Introduction

Who It's For

Parents and caregivers of young children.

Why It Empowers

Tantrums typically occur when children become overwhelmed and don’t yet have the social and emotional maturity to handle the situation. As a result, they appear to “lose it”. This can be frustrating, upsetting, and even embarrassing for the adults involved. With this activity, caregivers can learn how to handle and reduce incidents of tantrum behavior.
